Each time of year has its own unique charms; summer offers a bustling and vibrant sea side atmosphere with boats, ice cream, sandcastles, and laughter; autumn’s golden sun inspires long coastal walks, slow cooked stews, nostalgic board games and the sharing of stories around the kitchen table; winter brings dramatic scenery, crashing waves, woolly hats and hot chocolate beside the roaring log fire; and with spring comes new life on the shoreline, bobbing seal heads in the harbour, birdsong in the air and the peace to lose yourself in a good novel.
Within the traditional fishing village of Hope Cove there are two welcoming local pubs, a post office / small local store and an art gallery, all within minutes from Shippen House. There are two sandy beaches to enjoy which benefit from the shelter provided by the headland of Bolt Tail. The village is perfectly situated as a base from which to explore the South Hams being under a 15-minute drive from Salcombe, Kingsbridge, Bantham and Thurlestone.

What an incredible week! We’ve had such a relaxing time at Shippen exploring the beaches, walking along the coastal paths and just sitting enjoying the view. Thank you for having us, we’re already looking forward to next year’s stay.
Our family have been visiting Shippen House for many years and it was great to bring our own kids here this year. We love the convenience of having the beach right on our doorstep and loved the updates to the décor. Shippen House truly is a home from home in the South Hams.
